Singapore street food

Café de Hong Kong: Homesick Hong Kongers come for comfort food such as fried rice with fish roe. 65/6255-3865. $

Combat Durian: Follow your nose to this seasonal stand that sells prized varieties of the much-maligned fruit. The buttery mao shan wang is as creamy and rich as its name implies. 65/9278-9928. $

Founder Bak Kut Teh: Plenty of shops sell bak kut teh—a pork-rib soup that’s the ultimate hangover cure—but Founder’s version has extra-tender ribs and a long-simmered broth. 65/6352-6192. $

Loong Fatt Eating House & Confectionary: A tiny bakeshop with superior tau sar piah, crumbly sesame-seed-encrusted pastries filled with sweet or savory bean paste. 65/6253-4584. $

Whampoa Food Street (Keng) Fish Head Steamboat: Slurp up every last drop of fish head steamboat, a rich stock of grouper or pomfret bobbing with thick slices of fish, prawn, squid, cabbage, and sour plum. 65/9127-6550. $
